“What Bow to Choose”, When Starting Youth Hunting Career!
Starting youth out in bow hunting can be a daunting task, especially considering the number of youth bows on the market. There are more considerations than just size to be considered when finding the right bow to get kids hunting and with many parents purchasing bows online these considerations become even more valid. A feature that parents should consider is the versatility of the bow. Any youth bow should grow with the child and adjust for height and weight. Another key feature to consider is the weight of the bow itself. The bow length and draw weight are two additional features that should be considered when purchasing a youth bow. There are three bows that take versatility, bow length, and draw weight into consideration and because of that have become the names synonymous with youth bow hunting.
“Mission Menace” By Mathews
The Mission Menace is one of the top rated youth bows on the market. The bow is designed by Mission Archery to be easy to use in every aspect of its design. The Menace is a youth bow designed to be versatile and to grow with the child. The draw length of the bow expands from seventeen to thirty inches.
Mission Archery continued their youth design by giving the Menace a draw weight ranging from sixteen to fifty-two pounds with no press necessary for adjustments. Mission Archery topped off their well thought out design with making the Menace bow weight less than three pounds.
Mission Archery is not the only company that delivers an outstanding youth bow.
“Micro Midas” By Browning
Browning Archery has also delivered a great youth bow option in the form of the Micro Midas. The Micro Midas setup youth bow has a draw length of eighteen to twenty eight inches which is only a slight difference from the Menace. The big difference with this bow is the draw weight. If parents are looking for a lighter weight draw then the thirty to forty pound draw of the Micro Midas will be an ideal fit to start their youth bow hunting.
The “Edge” By Diamond
For parents who are interested in getting their daughters into bow hunting there is an optimal choice by Diamond Archery. The Diamond Edge is an ideal hunting bow for girls and boys, however, many parents are choosing this as the youth starter bow for their daughters due to two factors. Diamond has made the Edge to be a little bit heavier, but the draw length and weight balance it out. With a draw length of nineteen to twenty-nine inches and a draw weight of fifteen to thirty pounds the Diamond Edge bow is easy for girls to grow into.
When starting out a youth in bow hunting it can be “Easy to Overlook” the basics!
Parents may see the latest and greatest compound bow buy or model and buy it rather than making sure the basic features are there. Mission, Browning, and Diamond are all names that parents can trust to keep the basic features essential and to deliver bows that are suited to youth archery hunting. Overall, the best bow is the one that the youth tries out in the store rather than trusting to a strictly online purchase. Online shopping like buying a knife is a lot different than buying a bow !
